Patient Success Spotlight “After a recent back injury I quickly resigned myself to an extremely limited range of motion and to accepting chronic pain. I’m so grateful I came to my senses and back to Fyzical Therapy & Balance Centers. Within only a few days my pain was diminished and I started to be able to move in ways that would have been impossible because of the pain. Before I could barely put on shoes (I started wearing only shoes that I could slip on), getting dressed in the morning was painful and I had started to cancel plans with friends because I knew that a thirty-minute drive would be too much. Nicole was extremely helpful, and with a series of very simple, basic exercises and guidance I now have zero pain. I’m so relieved for the help, the quick recovery, and that I no longer feel like the pain and a limited life are inevitable.” - Amelia L.
